Lohan vs. Lohan

Yup, more Dina/Michael drama this morning.

Michael Lohan is reopening the divorce case, because he claims Dina won’t let him see his two younger children, Cody and Ali, and is preventing him from having contact with his two adult children, Lindsay and Michael Jr. (Although other reports indicate that Lindsay has been avoiding contact with her father because she doesn’t want to see him.) The couple are due in court this morning. Dina faces “immediate arrest and imprisonment” if she doesn’t show.

In court papers, Michael makes all sorts of allegations about Dina being drunk and hungover all the time (no surprise there), and says that “[w]hen it comes to our daughters, [Dina] has always viewed herself as a manager first, friend second, and mother third … Dina is a wanna-be living off Lindsay’s fame.”

Man, and you thought your parents had a nasty divorce.

By the way, Michael is still blogging about Living Lohan. You can read this week’s (nonsensical, rambling and self-congratulatory) update here .

Tatum O’Neal is Grateful for Crack Bust

After getting busted for buying crack on the streets of NY, recovering actress Tatum O’Neal says she’s actually pleased about the arrest. She claims she hasn’t actually relapsed — thanks to the cops.

“I’m still sober!” she says. “Just when I was about to change that and wreck my life, the cops came and saved me! I was saved by the bell, by the guys in the Seventh Precinct.”

Tatum explains her predicament further: “There’s no excuse for what I did. I lost my Scottish terrier, Lena, [three weeks ago]. That seemed to set me off. She got old. She got cancer. She was the fabric of our family. We had to let her go to heaven. My daughter and I had to put her down. It was too horrible for words. I couldn’t get out of it. I was going to my psychiatrist. I was doing everything I could do. I have the disease of alcoholism. It’s lifelong. I treat it every day by going to my 12-step program.”

I don’t know if I believe her or if I just want to believe her about this, but I certainly hope she gets better and stays healthy. I’m rooting for her. At least she’s handling this with some measure of honesty, grace and humility. Much better than the Gary Dourdan “the drugs were for my friends!” excuse.

Musical Boyfriends

Who was Cameron Diaz spotted out on the town with this weekend?

Jennifer Aniston’s ex, model Paul Sculfor.

“They looked really flirty,” says a source of the pair’s dinner at Santa Monica’s Il Ristorante di Giorgio Baldi on Sunday night, “She was laughing really loud at all of his jokes. It looked like a date.”

After two hours, Diaz, 36, and Sculfor, 37, left the restaurant together. Though Sculfor attempted to open her door, his chivalrous move was foiled when they were approached by a waiting photographer. “Paul tried but Cameron was rushing him to leave since she didn’t want to be photographed together,” says the source.



Jamie-Lynn Sigler is such a pretty girl, but she needs a new stylist, stat!

She’s newly single, and she’s just had a hopeless, endless string of red-carpet misses. It’s like she’s not even trying. Like, I know you’ve put on weight, Jamie, and I know that’s hard for you to cope with, but it doesn’t mean you have to wear a black fucking Hefty bag to every freaking event. Look at Jennifer Hudson. She’s a bigger girl — much bigger than you, dear — and she almost always looks fabulous. Have some fun with your fashion!
